COVID-19 update: Premier League statement
Thu 19 March 2020, 14:00|Tottenham Hotspur
The FA, Premier League, EFL and women’s professional game, together with the PFA and LMA understand we are in unprecedented times and our thoughts are with everyone affected by COVID-19.
We are united in our commitment to finding ways of resuming the 2019/20 football season and ensuring all domestic and European club league and cup matches are played as soon as it is safe and possible to do so.
We have collectively supported UEFA in postponing EURO 2020 to create space in the calendar to ensure domestic and European club league and cup matches have an increased opportunity to be played and, in doing so, maintain the integrity of each competition.
The FA’s Rules and Regulations state that “the season shall terminate not later than the 1 June” and “each competition shall, within the limit laid down by The FA, determine the length of its own playing season”. However, The FA’s Board has agreed for this limit to be extended indefinitely for the 2019/20 season in relation to Professional Football. Additionally, we have collectively agreed that the professional game in England will be further postponed until no earlier than 30 April.
The progress of COVID-19 remains unclear and we can reassure everyone the health and welfare of players, staff and supporters are our priority. We will continue to follow Government advice and work collaboratively to keep the situation under review and explore all options available to find ways of resuming the season when the conditions allow.
We would all like to re-emphasise that our thoughts are with everyone affected by COVID-19.
Any fan who has purchased a ticket for any fixture during this period, including Season Ticket Holders and those who have purchased via Ticket Exchange, will be able to use the ticket for the rescheduled match.
Should any Season Ticket Holders who have sold their seats for any home Premier League fixture via Ticket Exchange wish to attend the rescheduled fixture, they will be required to purchase from available seats on Ticket Exchange once the new fixture dates are confirmed.
If you have purchased a ticket and are unable to attend a re-arranged Premier League fixture, ticket refund requests following confirmation of the revised date can be made by submitting the refund form available on Ask Spurs.
Those who have purchased tickets for our forthcoming Barclays FA Women’s Super League matches at The Hive who are unable to attend re-arranged fixtures, once the dates have been confirmed, should email firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain a refund.
We advise supporters to speak to their travel provider directly for any re-arranged travel requirements. Match travel booked through the Big Green Coach service will be valid for the re-arranged fixtures. Any refund requests can be made by email to email@example.com.
We advise all our supporters to check their emails and all our channels for any further updates from the Club.
